Washington DC, Jan. 07, 2008. It is the last great wilderness of its kind, a rare and endangered haven for some of Earth´s hardiest creatures. Covering hundreds of thousands of square miles of Chile and Argentina, this wild place is known as Patagonia. In spite of its remote location, Patagonia and its wildlife are under pressure from the human footprint.
A new National Geographic Special, "Eden at the End of the World," shows the spectacular vistas and diverse animal life of the region while highlighting an innovative conservation model that will help preserve the pristine wilderness for future generations.
